BANGKOK

With so much of its daily life conducted on the street, there are few cities in the world that reward exploration as handsomely as Bangkok does. Cap off an extended long-tail boat trip with a visit to a hidden market. A stroll off Banglamphu’s beaten track can lead to a conversation with a monk. Get lost in the tiny lanes of Chinatown and stumble upon a Chinese opera performance. Or after dark, let the BTS (Skytrain) escort you to Sukhumvit, where the local nightlife scene reveals a cosmopolitan and dynamic city ...and see ping pong like you have never seen before.

PHUKET

Jade-hued waves wash white-gold beaches wrapped in Phuketian heritage. Phuket, Thailand's dazzling largest island, is so diverse you may never want to leave. Its tropical-island beaches are glorious, of course, but venture just a little beyond and you'll uncover astonishing Phuketian cultural riches. East-coast capital Phuket Town delights with its eye-opening museums, Peranakan cooking, Chinese shrines and historic mansions and shophouses done in characteristic Sino-Portuguese style. Ohhhhh ..did we mention the shopping ...and the legendary nightlife?

We have the opportunity to witness this once a year celebration as the Thai people release lanterns as well as floating and small candlelit vessels or "Krathong". They believe this floating vessel will carry away all their troubles, sorrows and indicates a new beginning. If the candle stays lit until it can no longer be seen this indicates better luck in the coming new year. (Transportation not included.)
